ERIK Santos
GUSTUNG-GUSTO naming nakakatsikahan si Erik Santos dahil napaka-sincere niyang tao at ramdam namin na kahit na gusto niyang itago ang tungkol sa personal na buhay niya ay naikukuwento pa rin niya sa amin dahil feeling niya ay trusted niya kami, ha-ha-ha kahit na madalas natin siyang ibuking, di ba, Bossing DMB?

(,Buti naman at ‘di ka nadadala sa amin, Erik! Ha-ha-ha! -DMB)

At last Friday sa presscon niya para sa kanyang InTENse: A Decade with the Prince of Pop na gaganapin sa November 9 sa PICC Plenary Hall, diretso namin siyang tinanong kung totoo bang nai-insecure siya sa kapwa niya male singers tulad nina Jed Madela, Christian Bautista, Mark Bautista at iba pa. Mahirap para sa isang singer na amining insecure siya, pero iba talaga si Erik Santos.

Erik Santos: Causing Eargasms Since 2003

To this day, I have never experienced anything remotely close to that TV magic I felt while watching Erik Santos sing “This is the Moment” in the Star in a Million grand finals. I doubt it will ever be surpassed. His competitors all had great voices, sure, but when he sang on that Saturday night of January 2004 it sounded like his voice was borne out of a serious hunger to prove himself and wrapped in so much passion that you believed him when he said he will “never reckon second best.”

Award-winning singer, platinum-selling albums, sold out concerts and number one songs. This year, Erik Santos is celebrating his 10th year in the business with the release of “The Erik Santos Collection,” a 30-song compilation of his well-loved hits for the past 10 years.

“Sobrang thankful at grateful po ako siyempre kay Lord at sa lahat ng mga tao na tumulong po talaga sa akin along the way,” Erik said during his album launch Saturday night.

The album includes the most recognizable theme songs from our favorite Filipino teleseryes and movies like, to name a few, “Ikaw” (Ina Kapatid Anak), “It Might Be You,” “Now That I Have You,” “Maging Sino Ka Man,” “Miss You Like Crazy,” “May Bukas Pa,” all from the same titles, and of course, who will forget “I’ll Never Go” from the Popoy and Basha movie “One More Chance.”

We asked Erik on how he will summarize the past 10 years in one word, he said:

“Love. Kasi I really love what I’m doing. Ito talaga yung passion ko, yung pagkanta. Siguro kahit sobrang maputi na lahat ng buhok ko, kakanta pa rin ako. As long as nandiyan sila, patuloy akong aawit.”

As for the next years, Erik said he wants to be iconic. “Sana maging iconic din ako like sina Sir Basil, Gary V., Martin Nievera, siyempre gusto kong makarating sa estado na yun that’s why I’m really doing my best para maging katulad din po nila,” he said.

Bumuhos ang mga tagasuporta ni Erik Santos sa Eastwood!

NANINIWALA na kami na pagdating nga sa titulo niyang Prince of Pop, talagang hindi matatawaran ang mga tagasuporta ni Erik Santos!

Pinuntahan namin ang album launch niya under Star Records sa Central Plaza ng Eastwood noong Sabado ng gabi. Bumagsak ang saksakan ng lakas na ulan na nagpabaha roon mismo sa lalakaran mo sa loob ng Eastwood. Pero nang dumating kami sa venue, punumpuno na ito ng mga nagsibili ng The Erik Santos Collection: Timless Movie and TV Theme Songs na pinirmahan niya after ng kanyang show.

Nagse-celebrate si Erik ng ika-10 taon niya sa showbiz. Kaya natutuwa siya dahil ni hindi nga raw niya namalayang naka-10 taon na pala siya at ang mga tagasuporta niya eh, hindi nangangawala.
